Norsemen Season 4: What is the Norsemen Series About?
Norsemen is a six-part Norwegian comedy originally titled Vikingane in its native language. Set in the year 790, it starts with Rufus, a Roman, being kidnapped and thrown into slavery in a Viking village called Norheim, disappointed that his cultural status and belief system meant nothing to the Vikings. The rest of the series follows a group of characters living in the village and the evil that they face in their daily lives. The Norse has it all; power struggle, thrilling battle, betrayal, rivalry, friendship, romance, struggle for gender equality, social commentary, and much more! The use of humor inherent in everyday life combined with the period setting makes it one of the most unique comedies to ever be made

The second season was released on November 3, 2017. The show was then renewed for a third season. The show premiered on screens on February 21, 2020.
